Lincoln & Foss, Boston, Large Sterling Silver (Chicken) Tongs
Silver : Sterling : Flatware

Old Friends  
3406f   $265.00


click for details
Measuring 7 7/8" long and weighing just over 3.2 T. oz., this pair of tongs are large enough in relative terms to be described as immense. They may be an old implement that is sometimes referenced as (fried) chicken tongs.

They are stamped "Lincoln & Foss" for the mid 19th century (1848-57) Boston firm, and quite unusual for the date, "Sterling," rather than the expected coin silver.

The scroll pattern that appears on each leg is one that was probably produced by Farrington & Hunnewell,... Click for details

length 8 1/2 inches, weight 2.55 Troy ounces, monogrammed as shown, fine condition.

Other pages on this internet show a scrawny 5 1/2 inch item which they're trying to pawn off as the nut spoon. We beg to differ. And if you'll allow me to indulge myself in some shameless salesmanship, I will state that pierced servers are eminently useful, and the pointed antique patterns fit in well with any others.
